NFL Trade Rumors: Seahawks’ Frank Clark Linked to Chiefs, Jets, Colts
The Seattle Seahawks have been talking to the Kansas City Chiefs, New York Jets and Indianapolis Colts about a trade for defensive end Frank Clark, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (h/t Kevin Patra).
However, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News later reported the authentic nfl jerseys cheap Jets “have no real interest” in Clark, adding they “did their due diligence” but haven’t pursued a deal beyond that.
The Seahawks used the franchise tag on Clark this offseason, but trade rumors have started to surface since the two sides have yet to agree on a contract extension. As Patra noted: “It’s possible a Clark trade goes down early this week, shaking up the draft. It’s been reported that the Seahawks have sought a first-round pick in return for the pass-rusher.”
Clark was excellent in 2018, accumulating 41 tackles, 13 sacks,nfl jerseys for cheap three forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and an interception. The 25-year-old earned a grade of 77.4 from Pro Football Focus, good for 18th among edge-rushers.
It’s hard to imagine the Seahawks want to part ways with Clark. But after they signed quarterback Russell Wilson to a four-year, $140 million contract extension, Clark’s demands may be difficult to meet. Patra noted he’s likely looking for a deal “somewhere around the $90 million deal Trey Flowers got from the Detroit Lions this offseason.”cheap nfl jerseys
Under the franchise tag, Clark would make $17.1 million next season. But as Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times reported April 18, some rumors indicate Clark could hold out through training camp if he doesn’t get a new deal.nfl jersey cheap

“We are always trying to understand what the landscape is throughout the National Football League,” he told reporters.cheap nfl jerseys from china “If we didn’t, we wouldn’t be doing our job. We can’t ever have our head in the sand with anything. But we love Frank, obviously. That’s why we franchised him.”cheap nfl authentic jerseys
It’s possible Clark could retrieve a first-round pick given his youth and his 32 sacks across the past three seasons. He’d be a major upgrade for teams like the Jets, Colts and Chiefs (who traded Dee Ford to the San Francisco 49ers this offseason and released Justin Houston).cheap authentic nfl jerseys
